Future of Food Equity
The future of Food Equity starts with equitable education. SR1 Agriculture and Food Science Department wants to grow engaged, curious learners and teach healthy eating habits through project-based learning (PBL) and learning by doing approaches.
Project-based learning (PBL) and "learning by doing" educational approaches are student-centered education that help students to acquire a deeper knowledge through active exploration of real-world challenges and problems.
What better way to teach Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and business than through agriculture and food science.
Five Great Reasons to participate in SR1 Agriculture K-12 programs:
Use agricultural concepts to teach reading, writing, math, science, and social studies.
Help students understand the importance of agriculture and natural resources, and introduce them to career opportunities.
Reach students who may thrive with alternative teaching methods and topics.
Teach about cutting edge topics, like robotics, molecular biology, environmental science, nanotechnology, nutrition science, and more.
Engage students with hands-on lessons and get outside!
